quote budget expands opportunity by growing the economy. it strengthens the safety net are retooling government and restores fairness by ending cronyism. [applause] and by setting priorities and choosing wisely, we have a plan to pay off our debt. in fact, we balance the budget in 10 years without raising taxes. [applause] how do we do this? it's really pretty simple. we stop spending money we don't have. go figure. you know, historically we've paid a little less than one fifth of our income in taxes to the federal government each year. but the government has spent a lot more, so our budget matches spending with income. we say to washington but we are willing to pay is what you're able to spend. washington should do the same thing. the crucial question isn't how we balance the budget. it's why we balanced the budget. the budget as a means to an end. we are not balancing the budget as an accounting exercise. for not just trying to make the numbers out of. we are trying to improve people's lives. our debt is a threat to this country. we have to tackle this problem before it tackles us.

the economy grow more and more jobs be created because we have had the slowest recovery during this recession since any time after the world war ii, at least. very, very slow. but we have done something to a degree we have never done before, and that is borrow and spend to stimulate the economy. and someone has compared borrowing and spending to stimulate the economy to the idea of someone taking a bucket, scooping up water in one end of the swimming pool and pouring it into the other. you have got no net gain. the truth is you lose some of the water out of the bucket as you walk along the shore. in this case what we lose is, we lose interest on that debt indefinitely because there's no plan to pay down the debt. so this budget that's before us today does not balance, it does not put us on a sound path, it does not create confidence in the -- among the american citizens that the future is going to be sound, that we've gotten this country reoriented in a way that's going to produce long-term growth. indeed, it's going to do exactly the opposite. it's going to do exactly the opposite.

recipe for fixing our ailing economy and certainly not the answer for the hardworking folks back home in wyoming. when you start with one party doing the drafting and those who wrote the budget hold the majority on the budget committee, you can expect the bill to be one-sided. if you keep on doing whatever you a been doing, you can expect to get the same results. unfortunately, i believe that's what we'll see this week as we debate the budget here on the senate floor. the majority kept us in the dark on the budget until the last -- until last wednesday evening. we had to present our opening statements in the budget committee before we even sue the budget the majority -- even saw the majority the budget would offer. i do have to say in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part

community, conservatives said this is a socialist radical idea, it will ruin the economy. so it still considered a radical idea, but it was nevertheless now law. about a year ago a poll was done of tea party members, and asked them a lot of questions about their views, about many things. and one of them was how they felt about social security. and about 70% of all the tea party members that they pulled said that congress and business committee should not mess with social security. they thought social security was sacrosanct. so how did this idea of social security go from being this socialist radical idea 100 you to g go to something that today, even right wing tea party members feel is so embedded in our society as part of our mainstream that it shouldn't be messed with? it doesn't mean that the art of some conservatives as people want to reduce social study benefits but almost all americans agree that social security is something that we need. so when i was in milwaukee, i thought everybody in milwaukee is going to know who victor berger was because you such a remarkable public figu

, especially in the obama economy. and if that's really the kind of budget senate democrats plan to offer, it would sacrifice america's hopes for sustained economic recovery at the altar of higher taxes and bloated, unaccountable government. it would also draw an important contrast with the budget republicans put forward yesterday. because here's the thing, republicans believe we should be growing the economy, not the government. growing the economy, not the government. and the house republican budget reflects just those priorities. it's a budget that does something else too. it actually balances. it actually balances. that's important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it would help unleash economic growth and bring down our country's massive, massive debt load. interest payments on the national debt alone are set to exceed everything we spend on defense. interest on the national debt is going to exceed everything we spend on defense in just a few years' time. so the path we're on is clearly not sustainable. with that in mind, i hope democrats will offer someth

massive deficits and an economy that was shedding hundreds of thousands of jobs per month. now we've made progress towards getting our debt and deficits under control, and we've added back jobs, but the recovery isn't as strong or as fast as it needs to be. millions of workers continue struggling to get back to work, and we still have some very serious challenges when it comes to our medium- and long-term deficit and debt challenges. in the coming weeks and months, we will be asked to make tough choices as we work to tackle these challenges responsibly. this process is not going to be easy. there's a serious difference of opinion about what our government should be doing to keep our economy and our national finances moving in the right direction. one approach is to follow a path back to the economic policies of the last administration. this is the path to more tax cuts for the rich but less opportunity for the middle class to get ahead. it is a path not to prosperity, which can only truly be built from the middle out, but to the deterioration of our national infrastructure and the decline
